Rather, I like the immense subtle changes from 2D and 3D filming. The problem I saw was that the 3D glasses were cheaply produced, cables quickly break along with their ports, etc. Another issue was that it was giving me a headache not long after putting the glasses on.
    All things to be worked out.

    I am not getting one. HD is enough for me and besides I am saving for a Jet Pack in 2015. I can't WAIT!

    Re: Movie Rentals

    I use a combination of methods to obtain my movie entertainment at home.

    I rent (or use to) from a video rental store, i.e., Blockbuster or Hollywood Video.

    I purchase videos (new, used or old but never viewed "still in the original packaging).

    I buy video On-Demand which if you have cable or satelite IS the way to go!

    My son uses NetFlicks or will stream videos online which I suppose if fine if you have the HD storage space and a large enough monitor with outstanding video resolution.

    I'm afraid, however, the traditional means of video rental is quickly going the way of the dinasour. The Hollywood Video near where I live will be closing their doors soon, and Blockbuster has been having problems meeting demand for the last 5 years. They won't be far behind.

    Blockbuster has been put on notice of getting delisted from the NYSE. Their shares are trading at around a quarter. They have like 30 or 45 days to get it up to a buck.

    That only works if they're offering the movie you want to watch at the time, which is rarely ever the case.

    My local Hollywood video went out of business not too long ago, one day they were just gone. I remember the days where there was a video rental place on every corner. Today, I don't have a clue where one is at all.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
